Curtain falls on Osbourne TV saga
The Osbournes
The Osbournes was first seen in the UK in May 2002
The final episode of reality show The Osbournes has been shown in the UK.

Music channel MTV marked the final instalment with Black Sabbath, a themed night dedicated to the family - Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly.

Every episode of the fourth series was screened on Sunday, culminating in the closing episode at 2200 BST.

"After the years the MTV cameras became part of the family, documenting what is possibly the most dramatic year we have had," said Sharon Osbourne.

"Though it was rough sometimes, we are truly blessed to have had this amazing experience."

Viewers saw the clan share their experiences with US psychologist Dr Phil McGraw.

Eventful year

It has been an eventful few months for the Osbournes.

In November, jewellery believed to be worth about 2m was stolen from his Buckinghamshire mansion.

In March, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne had to flee their home when a blaze broke out as they slept.

And earlier this month, Sharon and eldest daughter Aimee - who did not appear in the show - pulled out of a West End play so Aimee could be treated following a breast cancer scare.
